Task 6 of SemEval 2019 involves identifying and categorizing offensive language in social media. The systems developed by TECHSSN team uses multi-level classification techniques. We have developed two systems. In the first system, the first level of classification is done by a multi-branch 2D CNN classifier with Google’s pre-trained Word2Vec embedding and the second level of classification by string matching technique supported by offensive and bad words dictionary. The second system uses a multi-branch 1D CNN classifier with Glove pre-trained embedding layer for the first level of classification and string matching for the second level of classification. Input data with a probability of less than 0.70 in the first level are passed on to the second level. The misclassified examples are classified correctly in the second level.
